Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

Is there something wrong with Dr. Wallace's grammar? :o I don't know about Stirling, but I'm being somewhat facetious. For the work doing at your level, as long as it is helping you interact with the Greek, it's fine. There are issues at a methodological level, and I think there are better material...

Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

I do not have the workbook (and hope never to have it) ... Yes, strive for a "Wallace-free" library and you will do better. "Wallace-free" functions as a qualifier of "library." I do have Wallace's GGBB simply because it is widely used and quoted, and it's helpful to have the "original text" availa...

Re: The negation of perfect verb forms

It's one example out of many. I also gave ἔοικα. Please tell me how "the perfect refers simply to completed action" in James 1:6: αἰτείτω δὲ ἐν πίστει μηδὲν διακρινόμενος · ὁ γὰρ διακρινόμενος ἔοικεν κλύδωνι θαλάσσης ἀνεμιζομένῳ καὶ ῥιπιζομένῳ. Really? You're doing this? State predicates don't beha...

Edit: took a closer look. It may have value helping people understand the nature of the languages and some o...

Now, what articles or resources, preferably accessible online would you recommend for further study of this (of course anything by Dik is good, my second favorite classicist after Eleanor Dickey), and what is the best resource overall? My recommended resources are here: http://hypotyposeis.org/webl...

Re: John 8:25 and the adverbial accusative την αρχην

τὸ περὶ οὗ, simply the subject, ὃ τοῦτό ἐστιν, the predicate, and then "the rest in order." You keep using the word "simply," but it does not mean what you think it means. See how well it matches Helma Dik's analysis of Greek word order. I would have to say that there is nothing here that suggests ...
